Hope in Projection, 2017
For Hidden Door Festival, Edinburgh
A site-specific, two-channel sound and film installation in an abandoned cine-projection room in Leith Theatre. Built in 1932 as a grand symbol of civic pride, the theatre fell from memory and into decay following a Luftwaffe bombing raid early in WWII. The projection room had never housed a projector or shown a single film. For Hope in Projection accidental and performed sounds – the artist’s voice and an abandoned piano – form the looping, reversing and repeating soundtrack to a film shot of a 16mm film projector.
